John Blackwell, Tyler Wahl, and Max Klesmit break down fast start to Wisconsin’s season

The Badgers have gotten off to a strong start, finding themselves in the AP Top 25.

Ten games in, the Wisconsin Badgers have gotten off to a strong start, accumulating a 7-3 record with wins over Virginia, SMU, Michigan State, and Marquette, while their three losses have come at the hands of Tennessee, Providence, and Arizona.

After a disappointing 2022 campaign that saw the Badgers miss out on the NCAA Tournament, Wisconsin looked to make some changes, adding A.J. Storr from the transfer portal, while freshmen John Blackwell and Nolan Winter have quickly made an impact.

As a result, the outlook of the Badgers is much more positive through their fast start, and they’ll look to keep it up against Jacksonville State and Chicago State to round out their non-conference slate.
